The crossword clue ‘Prefix on the links‘ immediately made me think of internet links and web addresses. As a detective, I knew this crossword clue needed a technical approach. After some quick research, I discovered that the most common prefix for a web address or link is ‘HTTP‘. This prefix stands for ‘Hypertext Transfer Protocol,’ which is used to transfer data and information between web browsers and servers. It made sense since the internet and web addresses are links, and the ‘HTTP‘ prefix is the primary way to connect and access any website. With this insight, I confidently filled in the answer ‘HTTP‘ in the crossword puzzle and solved the mystery.
